Parent article: Fedora 18 released
It's the first time I read that, but I do know they're putting in good work. Just wish it would show up in the release announcement, "updated with many new features and
improved stability and performance, including updates to the Dolphin File Manager, Konsole, and KWin Window manager. " doesn't sound particularly impressive, despite this being quite an impressive release.
Yeah, it's close to the new 4.10 from KDE, but still, 4.9 was good in it's day ;-)
Meanwhile, it is sad to have to see basically three different GNOME-ish desktops included (four, if you include XFCE, but that has been around for a long time)... What a fragmentation.
Not two years ago, GNOME probably was #1, now it's fighting for 3rd place in most polls. I've stopped using it on my laptop too, it just has too many little annoyances. With GTK development also in a slum , I'm glad Qt didn't become the de-fact toolkit for Free Software just cuz of that but is doing better than ever before all on its own with Open Governance and all that.
